Wolverine and Sabretooth question
« on: December 17, 2018, 08:40:45 AM »
I know Sabretooth used to show up every year on Wolvie's birthday and almost kill him.

My question is, did Wolvie ever win any of those fights?
Truten forever!

IIRC, Logan never did, save for one encounter.

Yeah it was always no, but I think Sabretooth stopped doing that.

Wolverine has beaten Sabertooth in other encounters and would obviously expect Sabes to show up on the same day every year so I figured he would've won more than once.

I remember there was an issue where Logan asked Shang Chi to train him( not talking about the issue where Logan was powerless)...but I'm not sure about the final outcome.
There's also the other issue where Logan had that japanese sword( musamara?)able to stop healing factor.

I wonder when the last time they acknowledged that was, now that you mention it. Obviously since Creed got inverted or whatever it wouldn't have happened, but it only really works if you're showing him to be a competent threat, and I feel like some writers haven't seen him as such post-Weapon X.

The idea was definitely that he always wins those, and Wolverine is shook by it and powerless to stop it.

I figured he would just spend his birthday in the X-Mansion, hanging out with Colossus, Jean, etc. so that when Sabes strikes, he has backup.

Strange that has never been a factor considering all the time he's spent with them.

Um, this actually happened a few months ago in Weapon X I think.   I'll see if I can pull up the issue.   But yea!  This was an attack on old man Logan vs the current Logan.   And Old Man Logan's Hf has been on the decline as ewell as other aspects.

Well early Wolverine sometimes had more arrogance and a more pronounced temper. He would probably hate the idea of asking for help more then the beatings. When was the issue with the reveal about the birthday attacks again?

The idea kicked around was that was the true Sabretooth was the one that whipped Wolverine every year. The other were to be weaker clones of Sinister. I would have liked that.
